Army wants self-loading unmanned vehicles

Army wants self-loading unmanned vehicles: The Army wants unmanned ground vehicles that can be loaded and unloaded by other unmanned vehicles.

"My vision is for Army vehicles to have scalable autonomous capabilities," said Matt Donohue, the Army's science and technology ground maneuver technology portfolio director for the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology.

"For Army tactical vehicles, this means scalable autonomy from leader-follower to fully autonomous capable, including the ability to be loaded and unloaded by autonomous material handling equipment," Donohue said
